    Default Irish Bouzouki Strings - custom vs of the shelf

    I've got a Petersen Irish Bouzouki and I'm finally just about out of the strings I bought from him. His gauges are: 10,10 18,18 32w,10 44w,20w

    I can't seem to find anything in similar string gauges.
    Any recommendations?

    thanks for the help.

    I am not sure if they ship to the US, but Newtone will make up any set you want.

    I just found some La Bella strings that are fairly close in gauge. String gauges: .012p -.012p, .018p - .018p, .034w-.034w, .044w-.044w
    If I buy some plain strings to use as octave strings, this might work.
    I think I will give it a shot.

    Try juststrings.com. You'll be able to make up your own set by buying single strings.
